Sony KDL-40HX853

 

Sony's most affordable HX853 model turns out to be every bit as good as the others.

Awesome picture quality, Excellent online system, Powerful audio system

Confusing onscreen menu system, Very rare light blocking artefacts, Minor 3D crosstalk

Sony KDL-40HX853

 

Great HD picture, lots of options to adjust to your preference. Good sound from soundbar, but you do need to adjust the settings to get he best from it. Great to look at even when the TV is off! The tilt really sets it apart from other TVs. Updates via...

Picture options maybe too much for a novice. Internet browser is difficult to use.

Sony KDL-40HX853

 

ease of use, easy integration w/ home network, picture quality, menu system is easy to navigate, attractive design

TV will not play iTunes music purchased in US. Ripped discs do fine. What is with that? Not integrated well w/ Sony soundbar - purchased soundbar with TV and set it on console in front of TV. Bar obscures 3D signal - signal should come from top of TV,...

Image quality is excellent, especially in HD and 3D.

Very difficult (impossible?) to remove channels from the programme listings.

Sony KDL-40HX853

 

A Feature-Rich TV with Excellent Build Quality and Very Stunning Design and Picture, everything you expect from Sony. Very thoughtfully designed, all the features are easy to access and very comprehensive. Both picture quality and 3D is very good....

The sound is not great, but that is common with all slim flat-screen TV's. However, there was a great opportunity to enhance the sound with the plinth supplied, and although it is better, it didn't materialise into something great.

Great picture, lovely design

Despite the sound being improved by the integrated stand it is still not very good
